ok i'll agree real dad sounds like an awesome guy.. cave biologist.. MAN, there are sooo many awesome jobs in the world. and im stuck working with cars, too bad i screweed up my education
I could have been anything in the world, ima smart guy. Just too smart for myself so ive heard. I dont apply myself because i never have to work to learn. I become great at anything i try to do..
So yeah i missed out on lots of cool stuff.. so now i work customer service because im good at it, and i like cars.. fish arent a big trade where im at, neither are plants or id be doing that
Welp, im done sulking now. Back to fish stuff!!

Prices form back then: Syn. angelicus was 225$ each, P pictus had just been brought into the US market, 3.99. Black Ghost knife; 15-20$. Odd thing: prices for fish have not changed in 30 years +, come down in some cases. My real dad was very cool, he was a Cave Biologist at UK. I likely would have gotten into the hobby either way.

|plantbrain||I started at 8 year old, so 45-8 = 37 years. Does not include creek caught stuff I kept though, then you'd move it back to about 4 years old.|

I put it up prior to the talk.
You can see the post grow out on the right side of the tank where I hacked some Starougyne about 2 weeks ago.
The Royal Farowella's are born and raised in this tank, they have never seen any other habitat.

Funny how that works.
I think the more folks you meet in the hobby from the net, the better. You realize they are people and it's not a personal attack or something if you disagree and as folks mature in the hobby, they tend to agree FAR more than they disagree. I like to help folks, if I had other motivations, I'd not post much or give talks.
I've mess up plenty of tanks and walked most of the same paths, asked the same questions most any planted Hobbyist might have. Most anyone in the hobby that is active and has been in it for decade or more has.
